I'm wondering how people have felt over time as they've been sick. On the one hand, getting older (starting at a particular age) would seem it might make CFS worse.....although not necessarily, based on what I've observed. On the other hand, finding ways to feel better might make things improve as time goes on. What has your experience been? I got sick when I was 31. It's been about 11 years since then. For the first year or two, I was in bad shape....maybe a 20 out of 100 on that scale. Then (especially after I started taking some supplements and hormones) I improved, and since then have been at around an average of maybe 50 to 60 on that scale. (It goes up and down over days, weeks, months or more, though.) I'm sort of worried that I will get worse in general as I get older (not thinking about old-older yet, just into my 50s or 60s), although I'm not convinced that's the case. Thoughts?
